We've got the evidence of a sweaty outing at Thursday's Cardinals-Dodgers game—all to raise money for HavenHouse.
We wanted to share a few pictures of your Friendly Neighborhood Patchers at concession stand No. 150 —behind home plate!— at Thursday's St. Louis Cardinals game against the Dodgers (Cards won 7-4). Patch editors from around the St. Louis area were slinging hotdogs, beer and nachos supremes during Thursday's day game. The volunteer effort was the culmination of our Give 5 Day Fundraiser. Regular Patch users may remember the details: We agreed to work a concession stand and donate the charity proceeds to a local nonprofit. We invited users to enter a contest: Sign up for a Patch email newsletter and be entered into a drawing to win proceeds for the non-profit of your choice. Elissa Plastino of Creve Coeur won and directed our donation to …

Patch staff will work a concession at Thursday's St. Louis Cardinals game against the L.A. Dodgers, to raise money for charity. Elissa Plastino won our contest to donate the proceeds to her charity of choice. Congrats!
Elissa Plastino, who works in brand marketing for the corporate office of Isle of Capri Casinos Inc. in Creve Coeur, won Patch's Busch Stadium fundraiser contest. But the real winner will be HavenHouse in Creve Coeur, Plastino's choice for where our fundraising dollars go. HavenHouse provides "the comfort of home and a community of support for families traveling to St. Louis" for medical care. Here's what's happening: A group of Patch editors will work a concession stand at Thursday's St. Louis Cardinals game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. We intended to donate a portion of our proceeds (estimated between $1,500 and $2,500) to a local charity. So we had a contest that ended last week: Readers who signed up for a Patch newsletter were …

Local fans describe what they thought of the event, which is being hailed as the largest show in St. Louis history.
Epic. Astounding. Incredible. Bucket list worthy. Those are just some of the ways St. Louisans described last night's U2 360˚ concert at Busch Stadium. And I completely agree. Oakville Patch editor Alyssa Stahr and I had the privilege of attending last night's show, which is being billed as the largest concert in St. Louis history. I have to admit, when I first walked into the stadium and saw the massive 90-foot-tall structure called The Claw, I was in awe. I had seen stories showing the preparation of the Space Age-like stage, but to be there in person along with the more than 50,000 fans just took took me over the edge. At several points during the show, I actually teared up with sheer joy to be part of such an event. It was comparable …

Area seniors played in the Delta Dental Smiles League All-Star Baseball Game.
Former St. Louis Cardinals player Kerry Robinson knows the significance of playing a high school baseball game at Busch Stadium. Robinson played twice at the old Busch Stadium during his days at Hazelwood East High School, and when he accepted a coaching position at the Delta Dental SmilesLeague All-Star Baseball Game it was an opportunity to remember days of the past. “This is a big deal for these guys because I know that when I was in high school I got to play against Pattonville and had a great time,” Robinson said. “So this is a great opportunity to get out here and be like Albert Pujols and Matt Holliday and all of those guys that they see on TV.” Oakville's Ryan Simmons was one of 32 area high school seniors selected by high school …

Chad Gendron from Oakville High School was part of the showcase.
As the area’s top baseball players stepped onto the field at Busch Stadium for the High School Baseball Showcase, plenty of boyhood dreams came true. For Brett Graves Monday afternoon's game was also a taste of what could be an everyday occurrence. The recent Francis Howell graduate who was drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals. “It’s fun to think about playing at Busch someday,” Graves said. “Even if I wasn’t drafted by the Cardinals, I would still be really happy to be here. But the fact that I could be back here in a few years makes it that much more special. I’ve been to a million games since I was a little kid, and this is definitely a dream come true.” Graves and the Missouri All-Stars defeated the Illinois All-Stars, 8-3, in front of a…
